In brief: 1000-2000mg

Oil of primrose can help some people with their pms symptoms.
Usually you have to take a big enough dose from a well produced drug company for it to work. Use 1-2grams per day starting at the lower dose; if it does not work after 1-2 months increase it . If it does not help by then, it is probably not going to work for you.
